You Can't Choose Your Relatives

But you can mock them.

And they keep making it so easy.

My oldest sister got an email today, forwarded to her by my middle sister...the rabid Republican. My older sister immediately sent it to me to demand why *I* had such an idiot for a sister (and actually it was originally forwarded by an aunt to my middle sister, so it seems that idiocy runs rampant in my family. Damn.)

It was, of course, a poorly written, mostly fictitious, ranting, raving, mouth-frothing email about how the new health care plan that the Obama administration is backing is going to, well, basically, euthanize all the old folks, murder all the babies, spread herpes and H1N1 fall and wide, and generally make our lives a living hell the likes of we haven't seen since, well, never...

I, of course, forwarded it to nnaylime because I knew she would research each odd ball, nutcase comment and respond line for line with real information and data.

She did not disappointment me.

If you are the least bit interested (or simply want to laugh at my family) read her post HERE

I really do think that you and my husband would get along famously. He does the same damn thing to me whenever he gets one of those dumbass political emails. It immediately gets sent to me because he knows that I'll tear it to shreds.

You've met my mother who also likes to pokes me with sticks. All the way up to DC she kept switching the radio station over to Limbaugh so I'd spike my blood pressure.

Am I really that entertaining when I'm ranting?

It's scary, isn't it?
I had to walk away from a supervisor the other day who complained about our "socialist" government.
Please.

I know I can simply not respond...she's my sister and I love her but I just can't ever talk about politics with her. No matter how calm I stay, even though it is she that always brings it up (after telling ME not to talk about politics when I visit) it always gets turned around and I am the trouble-makers. Very distressing. Maybe she was adopted. Or dropped on her head as an infant.

Blah, that sounds WAY too much like my in-laws. I have no doubt they'd believe EVERY WORD, but not do any sort of research.
